The baseline

The baseline

A Poem by Joshua Lobdell

this is me


I speak my mind, even though I'm not always right

I like my coffee regular, and often late at night

The love of a good woman I certainly need

Sometimes I get too caught up in my greed

Pour a little Jack and Coke in my cup

I live life out loud, with the volume turned way up 

I like to write, and drink, and smoke

Silver Tongued, I'll be the first to drop a joke

Some of my words make people think that I'm unkind

Writing in my journal with a pen, and then online

I indulge in things that are bad for me

But they fuel my art, can't you see

I have a weakness for drinks and girls

Not impressed by shiny things, or pearls

I'm a dork, a geek, sit here at my computer

But you wouldn't like me any other way now would ya?
